Hailed as a “brilliant pianist” (Financial Times), Kate Campbell performs frequently as a soloist and chamber musician specializing in 20th and 21st century music, and is at home with styles ranging from thorny modernism, to “sleek and spirited” minimalism, to indie classical.
In addition to her work with SFCMP, Kate is the co-founder and pianist of the interdisciplinary duo KATES, which intertwines new solo piano music with new dance. The duo has been featured at NYSoundCircuit, Dance Conversations Festival at the Flea Theater in New York, and Omaha Under the Radar. As the pianist in the contemporary ensemble REDSHIFT, this year she will continue a guest artist residency at California State University East Bay, premiering works by faculty and student composers. Having recently relocated to the Bay Area, current freelance projects include performances with New Keys, Hot Air, the Garrett+Moulton Dance Company, and Switchboard Music Festival. She is also proud to be on the team of organizers for Omaha Under the Radar Festival, featuring new music, dance, and theater in her hometown. She can be heard on New Amsterdam Records.
